  • ACROSTIC POEM

    An acrostic poem is a fence around a wildlife park –

    can you hear it as you write, the confined animals,

    restless, pacing? They are looking for a way under,

    over, through. Each line is a wire,

    strong and tight. But any gaps in the fence –

    the animals will find them. They won’t be kept

    in. Through the gaps, the wild creatures

    come. They are escaping from your

    poem. Listen! The lions have broken

    out.

    They are

    so hungry. What will they

    eat?

    They have been dying to

    meet

    you.
